The Builders Group (TBG) has created a state-of-the-art classroom and hands-on demonstration training center, located at the our headquarters in Eagan, Minnesota. Here, our members can conduct customized safety training and education programs designed to help increase employee safety awareness and hazard recognition.
TBG Loss Control will help you tailor these training sessions to add to the effectiveness of your existing training by focusing on your company’s specific operational and company needs. We focus on practical and hands-on training, and our training center enables us to take our sessions from the classroom setting to a field simulation in a moment’s time. We also have a large selection of safety equipment and products available for trainees to view and evaluate for practicality.
Some of our training sessions are offered exclusively at the TBG classroom, but many of them can also be on site at your office, shop, job site, or other specializes location. Please view our calendar of upcoming safety seminars.
